State-run power equipment maker BHEL said it has commissioned 18 megawatt (MW) Mukerian hydro-electric project (HEP) in Punjab.

"With the commissioning of the second 9 MW hydro generating unit, Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd (BHEL) has successfully commissioned the 18 MW Mukerian hydro-electric project (HEP) stage-II in Punjab," the company said in a regulatory filing.

Located on the Mukerian canal in Hoshiarpur district of Punjab, the 18 MW Mukerian project is a surface powerhouse of Punjab State Power Corporation Ltd (PSPCL).

"The generation from Mukerian HEP stage-II will contribute significantly in reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and will help in achieving a low carbon development path for the nation," the company added.

The first unit of the Mukerian HEP was commissioned in May last year.
